On a crisp fall evening, downtown Winamac buzzed with energy as Pulaski County Tribe (PCT) hosted our much-anticipated fundraiser, Bingo, Bites & Autumn Delights. Laughter and the spirit of giving filled the air, uniting local businesses, kind-hearted folks, and supporters for a memorable evening for a good cause.
The event kicked off with the melodies of local musical talent Connor Jones & friends, creating a cozy atmosphere perfect for catching up with old friends and making new connections. One-Eyed Jack's, the gracious hosts of the night, offered autumn-inspired bites and beverages for guest enjoyment.
VIP tables were adorned with stylish fall tablescapes and exquisite charcuterie boards created by Trudi Gudeman of Montgomery Mercantile. These generous PCT supporters also received prime seating to take in the Bingo games and the live auction. They included Edward Jones - Alyssa Chapman, REMAX Realty - Lisa Malchow, Dr. Timothy Day, Harrison Realty - Ryan Harrison, and a private supporter of the organization.
The main attraction of the night was the engaging rounds of Bingo, bringing an extra dose of excitement and friendly competition to the gathering. The intermission was graced by a spirited live auction. After the Bingo games concluded, the silent auction items were awarded to the highest bidders, capping off a night of fall-filled fun.
The funds raised by PCT will support positive projects in Pulaski County aimed at uplifting the local community. A few recent projects include the Pulaski County Directory, Winamac Park Enhancements, Panhandle Pathway Mural, Community Celebration, and the Star City Park Mural, among others. These projects reflect PCT's commitment to nurturing a vibrant and thriving Pulaski County.
PCT's annual fundraiser was not just about raising funds; it was a celebration of community spirit and a testament to the incredible things that happen when neighbors come together for a good cause.
As PCT looks ahead to the promising year that awaits, we invite community members to join hands in our efforts to make a positive impact. For those interested in getting involved through membership or volunteering, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
